COLORADO GENDER CARE

We at Kaiser Permanente Colorado are proud to provide compassionate, comprehensive care services to our transgender and gender non-conforming members. Kaiser Permanente Colorado provides the care you deserve across all service lines by putting you at the center. This means that, no matter where you go, you’ll receive the care you want — when you need it.

We provide seamless care, from primary care to medical specialists experienced in gender affirming care. If you’re new and don’t know where to start, talk to your primary care provider, or ask to contact our gender health care coordinator, who will help you find a medical provider you’re comfortable with.

Connected care

Kaiser Permanente’s gender health services include a care coordinator who will help primary care providers ensure that our gender diverse members are taken care of every step of the way. The care coordinator:

  • Guides our patients through the transition processes (as needed)
  • Assists doctors and members alike in understanding how they get care from Kaiser Permanente
  • Makes referrals to specialists

 

The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.

Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.

Each year, Kaiser Permanente doctors are recognized as top doctors by their peers and publications such as 5280 magazine. Some have joined us from top-ranked academic training programs and successful private practices. Others have been honored for their invaluable contributions to medical advancements and new surgical techniques that help patients heal quickly and with less pain.

Our hospital partners have a track record of success and are often recognized as regional or national centers of excellence for their specialties. We also partner with national organizations, contributing to large, cutting-edge, research projects.
